when they say Plethora they mean it. Richard gave a workshop at MSUB many years ago and we all learned so much. He is a master mold maker. Highly recommend if you are interested in making and using molds. Patti Warashina made molds with him and she thinks he is the most anal mold maker there could possibly be.<- in a good way. He makes interchangeable sections to vary the imagery. Amazing
